Not quite a dram with a slice, but this thermal underwear will keep you equally toasty during the depths of winter. Layer under your Ice Queen or She Shell and discover the unrivalled properties of merino wool against your skin. Giddy up.
▹ Man vs Wild
Merino is unrivalled for comfort as a body layer. It absorbs more moisture than synthetic fibres, mopping up excess sweat rather than letting it settle and cool on your skin. However high-aerobic activities like cycling will often overload ordinary merino. Heatwave's polyester component repels moisture to avoid total saturation of the fabric - so it dries faster to keep you toasty.
▹ Snug-as-a-Bug Fit
Heatwave™ Merino tops are intended to hug your body, ensuring the fabric sits against your skin to wick sweat away - keeping you dry and not chilling out.
▹ Hot 'n' Cold
As a single garment Heatwave™ Merino regulates your temperature through a wide range of conditions. Delivering comfort in all but the hottest climes. Yet it is versatile enough to layer under a WindFoil™, microFoil™ or HydroFoil™ shell in winter.
▹ More than Kiwi Made
▹ Why is Heatwave Merino so comfortable next-to-skin?
Purchased this for my wife, she wears it constantly so that speaks for itself. She thinks its good for wearing on those cafe rides to town.
I have to confess that I bought this top for a tramping trip and it hasn't yet been on my bike !! But it kept me toasty in sub zero temps and powder snow. Pockets would be nice though.
Fantastic top absolutely love casual or cycling thinking of buying another
Just before taking off to ride all the way around Ireland for 3 months on a Tandem with my husband, he bought me a Groundeffect "Hot Toddy" because he knows how easily I get cold. I love it! We are over halfway through our trip and I wear my "Hot Toddy" almost every evening and some mornings despite this summer being considered very warm by the locals. I like the lightweight fabric because it packs easily into my limited pannier space. I also like the hoodie because my cycle helmet fits over the top. The dark blue colour makes it wearable to dinner as it always looks stylish, and finally I like that it's not scratchy on my skin like many wool garments. Well done Groundeffect for making a long ride more comfortable.
Another great top by ground effect. Love the hood fits perfect under my helmet and keep me toasty warm.
